MonceauBack to Paris
Located in an upscale residential Paris neighborhood, a short walk from the delightful Parc Monceau, the Monceau luxury vacation apartment is an elegant retreat capable of competing with the best Parisian hotels. This beautifully renovated two-bedroom luxury apartment is elevator accessible in a classic Haussmann building and is surrounded by historic hôtels particuliers. This luxury rental will permit you to live like a Parisian in an authentic neighborhood while remaining within quick reach of Paris’ famous tourist attractions.
The Monceau property has its own floor in this exclusive building. Upon entering the apartment through the grand double doors, you will be greeted by a chic hallway with chandelier lighting and just beyond is the large light-filled living space with French windows offering views of the neighborhood and its mansions. The living area is striking with original decorative marble fireplace and parquet flooring, and has been comfortably furnished with high quality velvet sofas, soft lamp lighting, and antique pieces.
Although petite by American standards, the kitchen is fully equipped and offers all of the appliances and amenities of a larger space. With tasteful white cabinetry and granite countertops, you will feel right at home cooking up gourmet meals and preparing coffee with your own Nespresso machine. There is an adjacent dining table for casual dining or morning croissants.
From the kitchen/dining area is the corridor leading to the two peaceful bedrooms and main bathroom. The first bedroom contains a queen-sized bed and the second two single beds which can be joined to form a king bed. All beds have newly upholstered headboards and valances and both bedrooms have fitted wardrobes with hanging space and shelving for storage. For additional sleeping space, the living room sofa can be converted into a bed. The newly outfitted Carrera marble bathroom with classic chrome fixtures is located between the two bedrooms and includes a combination bathtub and wall mounted shower. The second full bathroom is located to the immediate right of the of the entrance hall and offers a walk-in shower.
When you step out your door, you will find yourself in one of Paris' most desirable residential neighborhoods, within walking distance to a number of museums, markets, cafés, and other well-known sites. Foodies will love exploring the nearby Marché Lévis, one of Paris' renowned market streets, while the flower-filled Parc Monceau is just a short walk from the apartment, and is the perfect place to enjoy a picnic and mingle with the locals enjoying some sun.

Walking distance to both the Champs-Élysées and its famous Arc de Triomphe to the west and Montmartre to the north, the colorful Batignolles neighborhood meets the chic, upscale crowd of the Champs-Élysées in this elegant yet inviting slice of authentic Paris. The spacious Parc Monceau, which has been painted by Monet, attracts joggers, families, and picnickers from all over the city. Its unsymmetrical layout is a refreshing change of pace from the more classically manicured Jardin du Luxembourg and Jardin des Tuileries. Wander the park’s perimeter to admire impressive, tree-shaded mansions. Shop at the popular organic market on boulevard des Batignolles every Saturday and the shops of famed market street rue de Levis. And while most well known museums are a short walk or metro ride away, the neighborhood is home to the private museum of Jacquemart André, where you can meander lavishly decorated 18th-century apartments and peruse Italian Renaissance art. With many luxury hotels filling the 8th arrondissement, five-star dining options abound. But you’ll find an increasing number of more intimate, excellent restaurants on the wonderful rue de Levis market street, as well as in the Batignolles neighborhood in the 17th arrondissement. If you’re looking for a quick respite from the city, the convenient Gare Saint-Lazare allows easy access to a variety of wonderful day trips outside of Paris, including Versailles, Giverny, and Rouen.

Absolutely the best! When booking home properties vs. hotels one never knows exactly what they can expect, but HIP fulfills expectations in every way. From the responsive and thorough booking process to our arrival and departure, I cannot think of anything that would have made it a better experience. The Monceau property was exactly like the pictures and exquisitely beautiful, in a quiet and lovely area with everything that we needed in close proximity. The neighborhood information was comprehensive. The greeter, Evelyne, was delightful. The HIP staff were professional, prompt, attentive to our needs and extremely courteous. I look forward to my next HavenIn stay!
The property is lovely and is located in a quiet, upscale neighborhood with all the benefits of living in Paris. Within a ten-minute walk, there is a street that has the grocery chain Monoprix along with the mom-and-pop stores that carry the best of whatever there is to offer. We did have a problem with the water heater but it was fixed within twelve hours. And that was the only hiccup in our stay. We would gladly rent Monceau again if we return to Paris.
Apartment Monceau is elegant, warm and charming! Located in an upscale quiet business and residential neighborhood with access to a quaint neighborhood providing a creperie, formagerie, deli, boulangerie, restaurants and a mini grocery store only a block away. We walked daily through the beautiful Monceau Parc to the metro, alternatively walking into the city is short 20 minute walk. Our greeter Evelyne was a lovely French woman was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived to give us a tour and answer any questions about Paris. The apartment looks exactly as photographed, decorated in a elegant, classic decor. The floor plan functions well. Cleanliness is immaculate throughout. Staying in a large beautiful apartment allowed us to dine in for some evenings after being gone all day. We enjoyed sampling french wines, baguettes, cheese and interesting sides dishes, all while while watching our favorite movies filmed in France. At the end of the day our sleep was complete with beds made in crisp white sheets and comfy down comforters. I woke each morning in anticipation for a delightful walk to La Boulangerie des Vosges to load up on interesting french breakfast pastries, then back to the apartment to make an espresso from the Nespresso Pixie machine, from an interesting selection of espresso all provided with the apartment. Our stay in Paris was a dream vacation with every detail delightful. I believe our beautiful apartment in a quiet safe location was the key to the success. Eight days went too fast, I could have stayed month!
Working with HIP was a dream. They are so professional and extremely well run. Prompt and thorough through the whole process. We stayed in the Monceau Property and could not have been happier. It is a beautiful apartment in a quieter part of Paris which we loved. So nice to come back to it after being in the throngs of tourist! There are cafes, Pharmacies, Boulangerie's, and markets all within walking distance. It sits right next to lovely Monceau Parc where we enjoyed jogging and strolling with the Parisians. So sad to leave!
I've stayed in Paris many times and rented a number of apartments over the years. The apartment at Monceau was the best apartment ever. It is beautifully decorated with taste and style. The kitchen is well equipped. The apartment is quiet and located in an elegant neighbourhood. I would not recommend this apartment for first-time visitors to Paris as it is not in a tourist area and, while it is within walking distance to Champs-Elysées, it is necessary to get a bus or take the metro to other parts of Paris. However, the area is well served by a number of bus routes and Metro stations. If you like a quiet, non-tourist area then this apartment is perfect. There are 2 beautiful little museums within a very short walk and, of course, the lovely Parc Monceau. Haven in Paris handled the reservation and answered any questions promptly. Our greeters, Florence and Evelyne were professional and helpful.
The Monceau apartment is beautiful, spacious and comfortable. There are cafes, shops, grocery stores and Metro stops within easy walking distance. Haven in Paris was great to deal with, from the reservation process to checking with us during our stay to be sure everything was to our satisfaction. We hope to rent this apartment again!
We had a fantastic stay at the apartment we rented. The apartment exceeded our expectations, great location in the 8th, very comfortable and neat, lots of room, clean and with many amenities. We would definitely stay here again the next time we are in Paris.
We found the apartment very comfortable and perfectly outfitted for our needs. Our greeter was waiting for us when we arrived and gave us a wonderful overview of the apartment, the surrounding area, and some favorite sites. She was willing to accommodate our departure schedule for the final check off. We were extremely pleased with the accommodations, would highly recommend to others and use again when we are lucky enough to return to Paris.
We thoroughly enjoyed the apartment and found Evelyn, our greeter, delightful. She was waiting for us when we arrived and was prompt in meeting us at our departure time. The apartment was clean & inviting, and the furnishings were beautiful. The kitchen was also well outfitted and everything worked! We would return to this rental without hesitation.
This is the first time I have rented an apartment while traveling internationally. I have been to Paris many times and I am accustomed to staying in 5 Star Hotels. I was intrigued with renting an apartment so that I would have an opportunity to feel more immersed in the culture. I was very pleased with the reservation process and my experience with Haven in Paris was excellent. They were very prompt in responding to all my inquiries. The apartment was everything as seen in the photos and more. We couldn't have been more pleased with the apartment, the location and the way in which the apartment was highly appointed. The agent that met us at the apartment was very friendly and made a point to show us all the particulars in the apartment and gave us her phone number in the event we needed anything. We will definately return and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The Monceau apartment was the perfect home base for my husband and two daughters to explore Paris. The apartment was so spacious and comfortable - it was like home! Our greeter was lovely and spent lots of time helping us get acquainted with the neighborhood and flat. Monceau is a beautiful spot, quiet but so readily accessible to metro, shops and restaurants. We loved it!
The flat was gorgeous, spacious, spotless. Evelyne, our greeter, was fantastic, and we couldn't have enjoyed a better holiday. Monceau is lovely and we will be back!
The Monceau property met our expectations in virtually all respects, and frankly exceeded in some. Namely, the apartment was very well-appointed with amenities and all thinkable "creature comforts." Obviously some thoughtful and intelligent attention was paid to these details, and not lost on us. Another highlight was Evelyne our greeter. Not only did she have great energy, she was thorough and gracious with her time in providing ideas for activities (with and without kids), eateries, shopping, etc. during our visit. She also gave us an insightful tour of the property and pointed out important details that made our stay that much more enjoyable. Finally, I was quite satisfied with the cleanliness of the apt (and that is a high bar to reach!). We will definitely use Haven in Paris again (hopefully returning to the Monceau property!) and recommend to our friends.
We have just had nine delightful days staying in Parc Monceau,Paris. The apartment lived up to all our expectations and then some. We found the location was perfect and within a quick walk to the metro, shopping, markets. Our "greeter"was very friendly and informative, and the apartment was very clean, and light, with a very relaxing ambiance. I would definitely stay there again.
Monceau is a gem and hard to fault. Evelyne is way above expectations and was on time both times and was extremely knowledgeable----and she is the kind of person who after meeting with her for five minutes, makes you feel you have known her all your life. The cleaning was great also. You have an excellent team for this apartment. We are second time renters at this apartment and will be back again. The Parc Monceau is fabulous and the whole area is great.
The apartment was gorgeous. It might not be best for a first-time visitor to Paris, as it's a bit away from the center, but we liked being close to the Parc Monceau and the charming Batignolles neighborhood, and metro connections were excellent. The apartment was very light, spacious, attractively furnished and comfortable. The kitchen had ultra modern appliances and a good washer/dryer. The free wi-fi and (unbelievably) phone with free calling to the U.S. were very much appreciated. The bathrooms were well-equipped, and even came with heated towel racks. I just can't say enough about what a lovely apartment this is. Our greeter was prompt for both check-in and check-out, and helpfully arranged a cab to the airport for us. She was easy to reach by phone the couple of times we needed to, but not always by e-mail, which is about the only negative comment I can make. If you need a place to accommodate four (or more) adults, you should definitely consider this one! (Finally, I should add that the communication with Haven in Paris was clear, comprehensive and prompt throughout the process. They're been great to work with.)
We truly enjoyed the Monceau apartment. The accommodation is elegantly furnished, the rooms are flooded with light and very spacious, a thing somewhat rare in Paris. The kitchen was generously equipped, the bed linens were fresh and all quite immaculate. Having been in Paris many times, we were eager to explore a new neighborhood and it is was wonderful. The Parc Monceau is simply beautiful. What a retreat and only steps from the apartment. We enjoyed the neighborhood market and for a short while began to feel like locals. I would highly recommend Haven in Paris.
We spent a gorgeous 8 nights in the Monceau apartment with my 17 year son and daughter and her husband...It is a lovely quiet area of Paris with Cafes and Patisseries very close by. Within walking distance to Arc de triomphe and fairly close to the subway. The apartment has everything you want and more...a beautiful kitchen to cook in after picking up fresh supplies from the local farmers market, exquisite interiors, heaps of books to browse through and beds with big, soft comfy doonas to snuggle in. Loved every minute here and felt very sad to leave.
This trip was in celebration of my husband's 80th birthday with our two daughters joining us the second week of our stay. Besides being a beautiful apartment it was spacious giving each individual plenty of their own space. We were able to reach all areas of Paris from our Metro during the day then come back to our quiet neighborhood in the evening. It was convenient shopping in the neighborhood. We had a fantastic greeter & used a recommended, wonderful driver,from HIP for pick up and delivery to the airport.
The apartment was beautifully kept and more spacious that the photos give it credit for. I've stayed in many apartments in Paris over the years and usually you get a decent apartment in a not so nice building or the other way around. This apartment and the building are nicely kept, quiet, very clean, and everything is in great condition. Love the marble tub and the spaciousness of the living room area(s). My greeter was AMAZING, encouraged me to speak french with her, gave me a thorough review of everything at my disposal in the apartment as well as the neighborhood. She was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. All in all, a great find.
This was our first rental through Haven in Paris and based on the experience, it won't be the last. The apartment was larger than we expected and very charming in a very quiet building on a very quiet street. We all felt very safe. While unairconditioned, even on hot days - we were there when it was in the mid 80's - with fans the bedrooms were very comfortable at night, and even in the late afternoon, the front rooms were fine thanks to the wonderful cross ventilation of the apartment. The apartment was very well furnished and enabled us to eat in most nights, and with the US sized fridge - with an ice maker, no less - there was plenty of storage. Being on the 4th floor, the elevator was tremendous, although given its small size - tight even for two - we found ourselves often walking up the spiral staircase instead. The neighborhood was great - from the Parc Monceau down the street to all of the boulangeries and food stores within easy walking distance. And with easy access to lots of Metro lines, we were able to get to any place we wanted either directly or with just one transfer.
Very good experience. Apartment was wonderful, very elegant and satistyingly French. Very clean and well appointed. Roger, our greeter, was delightful and very helpful when we needed a 24 hour doctor for our daughter.
We had an excellent visit in Paris - especially thanks to our "Haven in Paris" apartment - "Monceau". Our last several visits, we have stayed in hotels - but this stay was the best by far! The quality and cleanliness of the apartment was excellent. The pictures on the website were very accurate. We were able to tour but also experience the local flavor of our neighborhood by shopping in markets and relaxing in our apartment in the late afternoons before dinner. We also frequented nearby neighborhood bistros and cafes we never would have found before. Thank you Haven in Paris, for such a wonderfuly stay - and helping to make Paris our favorite city!
The property, Parc Monceau, was absolutely beautiful. There were 5 women in this apartment and there was plenty of space of all of us. The living room is huge and perfect for watching a movie or sitting around talking - which we did late into the night. But since the bedrooms were separated by the kitchen from the living room, whoever went to bed early was not disturbed by the night owls - you couldn't hear a thing in the back bedrooms. The sofa bed was comfortable and the two bathrooms were much needed with 5 women getting ready at the same time every morning. The kitchen was high end and had everything we needed. The large refrigerator was a nice surprise and used by all of us after we bought groceries on rue Covetto for breakfast and snacks. We were prepared for the elevator to be broken but it was a nice surprise to see that it was working - we would have had trouble lugging all of our luggage up 4 flights of winding stairs! The neighborhood is quiet at night and we felt very safe. Wendy, our greeter, was so nice and helpful. Everything with the Parc Monceau apartment exceeded our expectations. I have come to expect nothing less from Haven in Paris. I must say a word about Sydney from the Tasty Side of Life. We booked her private champagne tour from the HiP website and it was one of the highlights of our week in Paris! Sydney was knowledge, very nice and made our day fantastic. We chose to see 2 small producers and 1 big producer and having done that, my recommendation is to stay with the smaller producers. After touring and tasting with 2 small producers and having that personal touch (not mention the best champagne I have ever tasted) and then touring a big producer, we would have rather spent more time at the small champagne houses. Oh, and lunch at Le Grand Cerf was delicious! I highly recommend touring with Sydney!
The property was beyond expectations! I just wished I was able to spend more time there! Very clean and spacious. Quiet neighborhood. Had all of the amenities you could ask for in a rental.
The Monceau apartment was very nice and clean (very important). The Greeter did her job efficiently - it was nice to know that we could contact her or Haven in Paris any time with any questions that we may have had (although this was not necessary). We found the information about the Apartment and about the local area - restaurant recommendations etc...which was sent to us and also found in the folders in the Apartment very useful. I used your driver David as I had to fly to the UK for a weekend. David picked me up from the Apartment at 5:15 am and also picked me up from CDG when I returned....this went without a problem. I would certainly recommend your organization and this apartment. I would also use your services again.
Another "painful" experience was made an absolute pleasure by the HIP team! Seeing pictures of accommodation online and actually experiencing the truth are often so far removed. Not this time! Thanks for making it easy to book, pay and secure our apartment. Our greeter, Wendy, was amazing and truly went out of her way to make our stay pleasant. The apartment was beautiful and we had an awesome time in Paris. Cant wait to come back! Hope to see you all again soon....
The Monceau property was excellent. We loved the space, the kitchen, the quiet neighborhood and the proximity to the park (for running). There was good shopping nearby and it was easy to get around the City, being located so close to several metro lines. Our greeter, Wendy, was excellent. She was pleasant, informative and quite willing to help us with any of our needs. We appreciated your willingness to address the apartment mix up and we ended up fully satisfied. Thanks very much.
Just wanted to let you know that our recent stay at the Parc Monceau apartment was fantastic. What a great place, and the apartment lived up to everything expected and more. I wanted to especially thank our greeter, Loredana, who was really great to us and for your company. We will return!
The Monceau apartment is a dream for me. This was my second visit to the Monceau flat, and I will definitely return to it as soon as possible because it is exactly what I want and need in my living space. The cleanliness was perfect in every way. The cleaner, Helen, is extremely exact, and that is very important to me. Wendy, the greeter, is very good too. She explained everything, which was not explained on my first visit, and was a help.
Our time in Paris couldn't have been better. After all, we were in Paris! The apartment was very comfortable and well situated to the park, the Monop, patisseries, and restaurants. Wendy was extremely helpful in acquainting us with the functions of appliances, etc. All in all, a very nice stay in Paris. Hope to stay at the Monceau apartment again next time.
The apartment is elegant with a luxurious feel. The large salons with floor to ceiling windows face the street and provide a bright, airy feeling to the space. The street is very quiet even with the windows open. The neighborhood is a mix of residential and upsale offices. The best croissants are one block away and the local brasserie is welcoming and friendly.
The Monceau apartment was all we could hoped for during our stay in Paris. It was elegant in its simplicity, very comfortable, and impeccably beautiful. Having the lovely park nearby which we walked through many times further enhanced our "neighborhood" Paris experience. We couldn't have been happier in our surroundings and would certainly return there if we visit Paris again. Our greeter, Wendy, was friendly, concerned, and helped to make our introduction to Paris very special.
Our stay at the stunning Monceau apartment was exceptional in every way. Having booked a hotel for a previous stay in Paris, we decided to opt for a luxury apartment as our holiday would be a gift to celebrate Russel's parents' 80th birthdays. We are SO glad we did and will never book a Parisian hotel again. Everything was just perfect and our greeter, Mika could not have made us feel more welcome. We used the recommended taxi service from CDG and Laurent was the first person we saw at the terminal gate holding a welcome board with correct spelling. We knew our holiday was off to a flying start and were grateful for his professional driving skills! The apartment is in a gorgeous quiet, location close to Parc Monceau and we enjoyed walks there every day. The apartment itself was the perfect choice for us as we are both designers and the wonderful array of art books and interesting paintings and prints was such a welcome bonus for us. Everything in the apartment exudes luxury and the kitchen is very well equipped. We would not hesitate to recommend Haven in Paris to our friends and family and have also looked at Tuscany to rendezvous with family from Vienna! We especially wanted to be in Paris for The Tour de France finish and our holiday was perfected by the wonderful atmosphere on that sunny Sunday. It was a wonderful holiday thoroughly enjoyed by all four of us. It takes a skilled team to make sure everything appears effortless!
As for our stay in the Monceau apartment, it exceeded expectations. It is beautiful, comfortable and well appointed. Although situated in a wonderfully quiet residential neighborhood, it is within walking distance of all major tourist sites. The "black book" (guide book) was very thorough and enormously helpful. Michel (private driver) is a good choice; he knows how to negotiate traffic jams. His partner Phillipe, also good, drove us back to the airport. Congratulations on your choice of cleaning staff; the apartment was just about immaculate. If we return to Paris, we would definitely rent it again.
The Monceau apartment was spectacular! We lived in a similar apartment for two years near this one and so it was nice to stay in an apartment with equally high standards. I am an interior decorator and appreciated the tasteful mix of lovely antiques with comfortable beds, linens and furniture. My husband loves to cook and was impressed with the well equipped kitchen. He had everything he needed to make us a fabulous French dinner. The modern conveniences such as the internet and Mac laptop, American refrigerator, washer, dryer, and even a dishwasher were also exceptional. My husband loved the apartment so much he wants to buy it! But I am happy to be renting through the very thorough Haven in Paris.
We enjoyed our stay at the Monceau thoroughly and were impressed with the spaciousness and open feel of the apartment as well as with the wonderful decor. One really feels like a Parisian here, even if you don't speak French. The beds and sheets were extremely comfortable and the bathrooms modern with fluffy white towels. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything you wanted and more. My two children learned to use the espresso machine so I enjoyed a morning espresso made by them each morning. The greeter was very helpful and walked us to the corner cafe for our morning breakfast after we arrived. The apartment is about ten minutes away from the closest metro which is a pleasant walk through Parc Monceau. There is a supermarket and bakery about five minutes away. Looking forward to coming back one day.
Our stay in Paris, and particularly the Monceau property, was absolutely perfect. It was the first time we had rented an apartment in Paris, rather than stay at a hotel, and we were slightly nervous about it. We had no need to be. The apartment was exactly as described and presented on your website. It was fantastic. Spacious, well appointed, comfortable, light-filled, luxurious. We'll never stay in another Paris hotel, that's for sure. Our greeter, Wendy, was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. She could not have been nicer. David drove us to and from the airport and was also great. On time, helpful - and fun too. We had two laugh-out-loud trips with him as we both (not always succesfully!) conversed in our mangled French/English. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and we thank you for the lovely touch of the bottle of vin rouge to welcome us to Paris. Our only suggestion for the wonderful Haven in Paris team is to keep doing what you're doing. You do it well and you obviously care about what you do.
Haven in Paris has been a real surprise. Best service, wonderful and helpful greeter and wonderful property. A different way to have an unforgettable holiday in a magic city. Even if Monceau property is a gorgeous luxury apartment, you feel like home from the first moment you come in . After you have been there, you won't forget it.
We adore Paris and had an absolutely wonderful trip! The apartment was beautiful and perfectly represented by the pictures on your website. So often pictures "inflate" the actual size of the space but this was certainly not the case. The apartment was beautifully appointed, spacious and comfortable, and spotlessly clean. It was perfect for our family of four (my husband, myself and two adult daughters.) The kitchen appliances were all top quality which made starting the morning with a leisurely breakfast most enjoyable. The downy feather comforters and the luxurious bedding contributed to a much needed night's rest at the end of a busy day. Since you have asked for suggestions on possible improvements, the ONLY extra I could possibly think of would be an additonal bed pillow, other than that it was exceptional. We really enjoyed meeting, Marthe, our greeter. She was so friendly and accessible and genuinely willing to assist if needed. We also appreciated her willingness to be flexible with our meeting times. This is our second experience renting an apartment in Paris and while our first experience was also very positive, we would definitely rent through Haven in Paris again and recommend the company to our friends. For us, dealing with a US company simplified the payment process tremendously and the attention to detail and courtesy we received from everyone associated with Haven in Paris would be difficult to top!
This trip was a once in a lifetime one, a Mom with her 3 daughters for a week in Paris. As wonderful as Paris is, the apartment is what made this stay far exceeding our expections. The apartment is beautifully furnished, great amenities in the kitchen, baths are wonderful, and located in a wonderful part of the city. We walked to just about everything, and there is a great park just around the corner and great little bakeries and specialities shops, and of course a wonderful restaurant just down the corner from the apartment. I will always choose "Haven" should I get the opportunity to travel to Europe again.
Excellent all around. Apartment was exceptional. Greeter very thorough. Recommended driver dependable. Thank you. I would definitely book thru you should I return.
The virtual staff at Haven in Paris was extremely professional and thanks for patience with our dates/apartment modifications. The apartment was very clean and beautifully appointed.. the pictures didn't do it justice!! Also, The apartment guide was invaluable... I have told all of my friends that Haven in Paris is the way to go. I will probably never book a hotel again. Our greeter Wendy was great on arrival and showed us how to use all of the appliances. Please give our sincere thanks to Victor Limos since there were no taxis available to book in advance on our departure date due to the Petrol strike!!! We want to emphasize the convenience of amenities such as the I-pod docking station and Mac Book (especially a life saver to find directions to things or check e-mails, etc.).
The Monceau was so perfectly Parisian. We instantly became locals rather than out of town visitors. We will count the days until we can return to our "home" in Paris!
The apartment was just what we needed! It was in a great location. Having the park just within reach and the Metro nearby was perfect. Mind you, for a family of 6, one cannot rent a car or hire a taxi. So, the Metro was our choice of transportation. (It was great learning experience for our children.) The apartment itself was relaxing. The convenience of the kitchen and the washer and dryer lowered my stress levels. Beautiful, well stocked, ease of appliance use. I could go on and on. Having a laptop available to us with wifi was a plus. Being able to use the phone to call overseas was a pleasant surprise. Wine and flowers made it very welcoming. Wendy was great! She explained everything to us. She was easy to speak with and gave us ideas on what to do, where to go, etc. Just pleasant all in all. I would do everything the same way, if I had to do it over again. And will look at your site for our next trip! Thank you!
My husband and I celebrated our milestone wedding anniversary in Paris where we renewed our wedding vows. I was somewhat apprehensive the morning of my departure as I was unsure about the apartment I booked. After entering the apartment I was pleasantly surprised. It feels like I never left home. The bathroom, kitchen, family room and just about everything reminds me of my home just a smaller version. I like the place and it is perfect for us. The Apartment has an impressive contemporary design with a stylish base for tradition that enhances our stay in Paris. We enjoyed the excellent location of this property which is within close proximity to subways, markets and just a walk from Arc de Triomphe. The apartment is designed with clean white, decor and features a fully-equipped kitchenette and breakfast nook; amenities include flat screen TV, washing machine and dryer and free Wi-Fi internet access along with access to a computer. Our greeter Wendy was wonderful, along with Andy who transported us to and from the Airport. Thank you Haven in Paris and your wonderful team. Maggie and Wendy. I would definitely recommend your services and would love to stay there again.
My wife and I and 3 kids rented the Monceau apartment for 4 nights in June 2010. The apartment is gorgeous and comfortable with modern appliances and a great location in the 8th. The greeter was very helpful and gracious. All in all our stay in Paris was great and dealing with Haven in Paris was a pleasure. I highly recommend the apartment and HIP.
The Monceau apartment was more that we had expected. Absolutely perfect for two couples. We felt incredibly fortunate to have found this very beautiful apartment, within easy walking distance to all amenities. A big thanks to Haven-in-Paris for the friendly welcome. We hope to return soon.
Have just returned from Paris after spending a week in the Monceau apartment. Everything was very professional from making the reservation to Wendy meeting us in Paris and the follow up from the HIP staff during and after our holiday. The apartment far exceeded our expectations, the only problem being we didn't have enough time to explore the local area properly. Can't wait to book the next holiday through Haven In Paris.
We're two-time users and likely to be back again in a year or two. Haven offers excellent properties in a variety of locations. Both of our rentals have been charming, comfortable and convenient. Monceau is exceedingly well laid out and equipped to the highest standard. We took full advantage of local attractions and therefore had new experiences we wouldn't otherwise have had. It's also within walking distance or easy Metro connections to most of the main museums, shopping areas and historic sites.
wery well organised and fairly priced
The property was lovely, spacious and perfect for two girls sans husbands and kids! Monceau is such an elegant space and we loved staying there. We found the location to be ideal for us; even though the Metro was close by, it was more fun to walk through the neighborhood. We also arrived at the more central parts of Paris within 10-15 minutes. Because it is not a top floor apartment, you can hear people walking around upstairs - this is normal, of course,and it didn't bother us because it was never late at night. The only things I would recommend changing are: smaller soaps in the bathroom (it felt wasteful to have an entire brand new bar of soap for so short a stay); and guest slippers would be really nice since it's not something people usually travel with and we were asked to remove our shoes upon entering the apartment (due to the extra dusty streets of Paris).
The Monceau apartment is spacious, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. Our greeter was friendly, thorough, and readily available. Haven in Paris was accomodating and made our dates work out. We had a wonderful stay and are looking forward to returning someday.
THE MONCEAU APARTMENT WAS AS BEAUTIFUL AND SPACIOUS AS DEPICTED. EVERYTHING WAS STATE OF THE ART AND MADE FOR A VERY COMFORTABLE STAY. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND AND WOULD BE ANXIOUS TO TRY OTHER LOCATIONS AS WELL.
First of all I wanted to comment on the most professional well-organized business that I have dealt with regarding overseas trips, rentals etc. You are top notch. The apartment was perfect in every way. It was so tastefully decorated and had everything that you would need for a weeks stay. The added feature of the phone and the computer made you feel that you were to be trusted and not "nickel and dimed" and it certainly came in very handy. The brochure (book of instructions) was perfectly outlined and made it very easy to operate the equipment and appliances in the apartment. The recommended restaurants were well outlined. We actually went to 4 of those that were The whole process in working with you was so gracious, comfortable, trusting etc. Everything went so smoothly. The driver (Andy) was timely and friendly, Wendy (our greeter) was helpful also. I only wish every European city had a Haven in _____. Thank you for making such a nice trip for us.
The apartment is beautiful and we certainly have more room than we need for three people. The area is great. We are enjoying it all and thank you for all your follow-ups and concerns. ... Sadly, we are coming to the end of our stay at Monceau. All I can say is that my sister, brother-in-law and I have thoroughly enjoyed our week in this beautiful apartment. It is bright and most elegant. We have, particularly, enjoyed our walks through Parc Monceau each day. The tranquility was noticeable and the gorgeous flowers and trees are lovely. What a bonus to have this on the doorstep. We used Andy, whom you had recommended and he was so courteous and efficient. He was there for us and will collect us again tomorrow, Terrific guy. The delightful Wendy was here to greet us and showed us everything we needed to know about the workings of the apartment. We couldn't figure out how to open the washing machine door and one 'phone call to her corrected that in an instant. She walked us through it over the 'phone. What a gracious lady. I wish we could have had more time to chat with her. We had a fair few rain showers but you even provided umbrellas for us. You thought of everything to make one's stay comfortable in every way. Your efficient and professional attention to every detail is remarkable and there is no doubt that we would never stay in a hotel again, now that we have found you !! I would like to say a huge thanks to you all for your wonderful efforts in making our Paris stay so worthwhile and memorable. PS: A bit later - For our departure, Andy also arrived right on time. He came up to the apt. and brought down our cases. We were thoroughly spoiled.
Please see my earlier very favourable review
Wonderful apartment - very nice furnished very very clean, loads of white towels. Wendy made a warm nice welcome ! We will book again! Thank you!
Elegant apartment in a wonderful area--only steps from Parc Monceau and shops. As described on the web site, well equipped, spotlessly clean. Kitchen is small--a one person kitchen.
All went well; the apt was delightful & everything that we expected. Greeter Wendy was most helpful. We'll certainly use your excellent services again!
Four single females who planned a Paris trip for over a year and were impressed with our accomodations at the Monceau Apartment. The apartment was spacious, and well equipped and clean. The greeter was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The Metro station was less than a five minute walk through the Monceau Park. Little grocery stores, wine stores, cafes and markets were less than five minutes walk from apartment. All of us LOVED our accomodations at the Monceau Apartment......WE WILL BE RETURNING AGAIN AND HAVE ALREADY RECOMMENDED THIS APARTMENT TO OTHERS!!!!!
We had a wonderful week in Paris and adored the apartment.
The Monceau apartment is a large, very comfortable apartment, well-equipped. Wendy, our greeter/facilitator, was cheerful and responsive. We found the location a mixed experience - quiet, and the park is lovely, but we have found St. Germain or Quai Horloge locations on balance better, as Monceau is a bit too far for convenient walking to many locations.
The Monceau apartment is a beautiful and very comfortable apartment in a very quiet neighborhood. Local shopping for groceries is excellent. Access to the metro is easy and the Champs Elysees is a 15 minute walk. Our greeter, Wendy, was excellent and made sure we were familiar with all aspects of the apartment. The HIP team also helped out with a last minute request for a woman to show my two daughters around Paris while I attended work commitments.
We had such a wonderful time in Paris .Thanks to Wendy who made us feel so welcome. Thank you again .This is an awesome property with every amenity that you will ever need
The apartment was lovely and our greeter, Wendy very sweet and helpful. We enjoyed returning to the apt. after a long day and being able to spread out, use the internet, etc. I will definitely recommend your company to friends I know who travel. Thank you again for the hospitality. I'm sure our stay in the Monceau apt. will be one of the highlights of our trip. P.S. Another thing we liked about the apt. is that it is VERY quiet at night. We slept with the windows open every night and were never disturbed by street noise. This was a big plus.
We had a wonderful time in Paris. Our Haven in Paris at Monceau was perfect. The apartment is just as shown on your site but even more lovely. How wonderful to open the windows and be part of life in Monceau. I must admit we didn't use the stove, we ate out at a huge variety of places and if not going out we shopped at our local market for cheese, prosciutto fruit and baguette. We hope to travel next year so we will use your Haven in Paris site. Our driver David was great, on time and dealing with luggage, delivering it to the apartment and then taking it back down when we left. We would certainly use him again. Haven in Paris is a site we would recommend to all. Thank you again for making the whole experience, from booking to end so easy.
We were very pleased with the Monceau rental. The reservation contacts via email and greeter in Paris were all friendly, polite, and very professional. Communication and arrangements were all done in a timely manner. The unit itself was spacious, very comfortable, and is able to easily accommodate up to 6 people. It was a quiet building so is great for those who may be light sleepers and was in a very safe, conveniently-located neighborhood. The induction stove, convection oven and washer and dryer were a huge hit for us too.
Really loved dealing with the HIP team particularly in contrast with the agency we dealt with in renting a Villa in the South of France before we arrived in Paris! Once we had sorted out the Euro v US$ problem everything was extremely smooth, friendly and attentive. The system for the bond to cover any damage is also much better than the other agency who charge your credit card in advance and you then have to wait until 14 days after the end of rental to receive your credit which means they have you money for at least 6 weeks - unacceptable! Th apartment was exactly as it looked on line. In beautiful condition and everything worked!! Location perfect and full of sunlight what more could you ask for!
The apartment was beautiful and was well appointed. The location was lovely - in a quite neighborhood near Parc Monceau, but only a five minute walk from the Monceau Metro stop. Perfect for a family of 4 or 5.
Like many of you checking out this web-page, my wife and I decided that a Hotel was not for us during our 1 week stay in Paris (Apr 19-26), so we began the various searches you are doing now, to find a suitable apartment that would accomodate the 5 of us, and stay within our budget at the same time. After many weeks of deliberation, we decided on the Monceau property with the Haven-in-Paris team, and were extremely pleased with our selection. The apartment is exactly as shown, and was a beautiful retreat to the end of each day. Located in the la-de-da area of Park Monceau, you are a short walk to the Metro and have all the amenities you will need within 3 minutes of the apartment. The service of Erica and her team were suburb and the smooth booking process via email and charge card, was exactly what we were looking for. Our greeter (Wendy) was a great source of information and went out of her way to make sure all our needs were attended to. Not shown in the pictures is the lobby and the charming elevator you make use of, which makes you feel like a true Parisian every day as you are coming and going. When we return, and we will return, we will not need to do any new searching. We will just see what units Erica has available, and book with the Haven team again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and the apartment was just perfect, our greeter was amazing and so helpful, it couldn't have gone any better! I will be in touch, again thank you for all your help with organizing our stay, it really was just perfect.
Ooooh la la! The best Paris apartment ever. Beautifully furnished. Every last detail is remembered to make living in this apartment a delight. The bed is very comfortable. Two spacious bright bathrooms. Gorgeous hardwood floors. Comfortable seating. The kitchen is modern and so easy to use. Perfect for keeping some wine and cheese on hand or cooking a seven course meal. It's all possible. Everything we could have wanted to do or see was close by. Walking to the major attractions is about 30 - 40 minutes with lots to see and shop for along the way. We walked a lot and found the apartment to be very convenient for everything that we wanted to do and see. There are three Metro stations close if you need to get there faster. There are quaint restaurants very close by and if you choose to stay in and cook a grocery store, pastry shop, cheese shop and butcher are just a block away. The wireless internet was a real plus and being able to phone home to the US was certainly unexpected and such a nice bonus. Wendy, our greeter, was very nice and very helpful with how everything in the apartment worked. She even went out of her way on the initial meeting to show us where the grocery store was as well as helped us find an ATM. She is delightful.We would highly recommend this property, in fact it would be hard to stay any place else in Paris after staying here.
I must say that I was lucky to rent this apartment and I would like to thank the owner for his taste we felt like home plus it is fully equipped nothing was missing. I will contact the company (Haven in Paris) for any future deals. Thank you all very much
